This contemporary advertising lifestyle image was shot on a North Florida beach. The "Problem" was timing. In order to have the skylight needed to be able to see the ocean and the firelight bright enough to properly illuminate the models, I had to have the fire burning bright and close to the models. I had literally a "Magic" 5 minute window to shoot this. Earlier and the skylight is too bright and later the skylight is not bright enough to properly illuminate the shadow side of the models plus the beach, sky and ocean. And this shot is likely one of the last images we shot as the skylight is a bit dark. The other part of this was I did not want to leave a mess on the beach. So I went to a sheet metal fabrication shop and bought a section of galvanized steel, took it to my shop, cut the corners, bent the edges up 90° to give it a lip and welded them into place. (In another life I was a welder and fabricator) We built the fire in the pan and moved the sand to hide the lip from the camera. After we shot the project my assistants grabbed the bucket and doused the fire. They then took all of the wet wood out and walked to the street and dumped the ash on the ground away from the walkway as it is fertilizer. Kevin, the male model closest to the fire, is rubbing his leg as it is a bit warm. He was the only person with shorts. I just could not take time to move people around as this balance of light lasts literally 5 minutes, 8 minutes if you are really lucky. Fortunately there were no burns. The image shows happiness, friends, action, relaxation and beauty.
